The bighorn sheep study I'm

The bighorn sheep study I'm working will be done right around the opener of elk archery (late August). Right now I have an elk tag which will run all through the opener and into the mtn. goat season. I have to make up my mind if I am going to turn in my elk tag in order to get some extra goat scouting in. Things are going so well so far that I am not really sure turning in my elk tag will do me any good. 

Either way I've got a deer and a pronghorn scouting trips occupying the next two weekends. I'll get atleast two more trips up to the goat unit even if I don't turn in my elk tag.

That "soup" might look tasty,

That "soup" might look tasty, but it actually makes for a very colorful, nice photo!  The orange of the sludge, green of the trees, etc.

Looks like you're starting to narrow things down.  Hope you get an elk and a goat!

Well good news and bad

Well good news and bad news... I got a two week funding extension on the bighorn study I'm working (more savings for taxidermy!) but that also means less time spent scouting right before the hunt. I'll now be done Sept. 2nd... that still gives me a lot of time before the 19th.

As long as your off after

As long as your off after that it should be plenty of time to get ready. You gotta put money in the bank while you can. I've been doing the same all summer myself to pay for all the great events planned for this fall.
